I am in the process of divorcing my husband of 12 years because of his drinking. I am numb, don't have any emotion...absolutely nothing. Because of the lies and the deception for so long...I feel a big void.
I don't want to be manipulated anymore by him...till we sell the house and go our separate ways permanently I do have to stay in contact with him to some degree. He can be hostile and emotional abuse.
I'm working my own on co-dependency and Al-anon...I just need to know how to create the boundary of not getting pulled into a guilt trip or being manipulated. We don't have children.
When I meet him, the very first thing he told me was he was a recovering alcoholic. Gosh, if I knew then what I know now...I would have run like the wind!
"Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened." - Matthew 7:7-8
